This is part of the McCormick-Schmick chain so you're really not getting a unique Portland experience. MS is an average operator, they only lasted a year in Santa (our home) before going out of business. Nothing bad about the food, just average. We had a 8oz filet which seemed undersized but good, only 1 choice of fresh oysters, trout was... More

Lots of prom parties this evening. Our server did well, despite the hoopla. Food was very good as always. We always enjoy Jakes for the old Portland atmosphere and outstanding seafood. Service is normally excellent. We will be back here in a week, as a matter of fact.

Happies menu is extensive, cheap, and food really well prepared. Bar tenders are on top of customers needs and polite. Great place to meet friends after work, grab a craft beer, and sample the happy hour menu. Dinner menu gets a bit more pricey, but food quality and preparation is very good.

We came here our second night in Portland; we heard that this place has been open for many many years and is the best place to come for steak and seafood. The table started with an array of seafood apps and the onion strings (maybe just a touch to oily, but still very delicious and the sauces complimented nicely). I... More

This steak house in downtown Portland, is attached to a hotel, but you'd never know it. The 100+ year old building retains its charm, including a fantastic carved wooden bar. Prices are on the high side (steaks run from $25 to $50), but there are other things on the menu as well, such as several fish options, pork chops, and... More

We sat outside during the evening rush hour for a beverage and interesting views. We requested a corner window table for dinner, and moved inside. The cashew crusted trout was excellent! My spouse had the salmon and enjoyed it. We also enjoyed the local berry cobbler for dessert. Service was very good, waiters in white jackets.

My son and I had a wonderful late lunch at this exquisite restaurant. The service was very good. The restaurant was very clean and the decor reminded me of an old time supper club... My son had the meatloaf in which he stated it was the best he had ever had. I had the almond crusted rainbow trout. It was... More

We were told by friends not to miss this place! We were so glad we took their advice. Coming from michigan, great seafood is a rarity. Call and make reservations. When you do....ask to be seated in John's area. He is a GEM of a waiter....and made our decisions so easy. My husband had the Copper River Salmon and enjoyed... More
